“…just give a pre-prepared excuse and make a dash for the nearest exit; something like “oh I really must go, I just remembered that I left my mother in the oven”. Or maybe “I’m so sorry, but I have to say goodbye to my cat before she’s launched into space”. And then run. RUN.”
Yesterdates is a collection of hilarious, heartwarming, and all-too-relatable tales of a single twenty-something, hopelessly in love with the idea of finding Mr. Right.
Based on Scott De Buitléir’s gay dating column in the now-defunct Polari magazine, Yesterdates gives a light-hearted and honest account of various dating disasters, from bizarre cat impersonators to flirtatious baristas, with some sweet moments of young love and self-discovery along the way. In his third book, Scott completes the journey to find love with a final chapter to prove that even taking a chance on a ‘practice date’ could end up to become true love.
